Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g5543 Greek: chrestos

Easy, Easier, Easily:

primarily signifies "fit for use, able to be used" (akin to chraomai, "to use"), hence, "good, virtuous, mild, pleasant" (in contrast to what is hard, harsh, sharp, bitter). It is said

(a) of the character of God as "kind, gracious," Luk 6:35; 1Pe 2:3; "good," Rom 2:4, where the neuter of the adjective is used as a noun, "the goodness" (cp. the corresponding noun chrestotes, "goodness," in the same verse);

(b) of the yoke of Christ, Mat 11:30, "easy" (a suitable rendering would be "kindly");

(c) of believers, Eph 4:32;

(d) of things, as wine, Luk 5:39, RV, "good," for AV, "better" (cp. Jer 24:3, 5, of figs);

(e) ethically, of manners, 1Cr 15:33.
See GOOD, GRACIOUS, KIND.

2 Strong's Number: g2123 Greek: eukopoteros

Easy, Easier, Easily:

the comparative degree of eukopos, "easy, with easy labor" (eu, "well," kopos, "labor"), hence, of that which is "easier to do," is found in the Synoptics only, Mat 9:5; 19:24; Mar 2:9; 10:25; Luk 5:23; 16:17; 18:25.

Notes:

(1) The adverb "easily" is included in the translation of euperistatos in Hbr 12:1, "easily beset," lit., "the easily besetting sin," probably a figure from a garment, "easily surrounding," and therefore easily entangling.
See BESET.

(2) In 1Cr 13:5, AV, "is not easily provoked," there is no word in the original representing "easily;" RV, "is not provoked."

(3) For "easy to be entreated" see INTREAT. For "easy to be understood" see UNDERSTAND.
